Project-Based Learning Workshop:

Using Genius Hour to Drive Success

Full Day Workshop - July 21, 2022 - 9:00-4:00 PM CST

65% of children entering primary school today will ultimately end up working in jobs that don’t yet exist.

Ken Robinson says, "Creativity is as important in education as is literacy." It's time to "flip the script" on educational practices and give students opportunities to embed themselves in project-based learning.

It's time to foster innovation, inspire creativity, and cultivate critical thinking—the skills our students will need to succeed within the twenty-first-century complexities of citizenship.


Full Day Workshop - July  21, 2022 - 9:00-4:00 PM CST

Allow students to work on something that interests them and motivation and engagement levels will skyrocket.

Give students real and authentic learning opportunities.

 Teachers will learn how to transform their classroom into a “meaningful” one with an exciting, dynamic learning environment. Encouraging debates and brainstorming sessions, teaching problem solving exercises, and holding group discussions are all great ways to actively engage students in learning.

Bring real-life context and technology to the curriculum.

A Project-Based Learning approach encourages students to become   independent workers, critical thinkers, and lifelong learners.

Teach students to problem-solve, develop resiliency, and think critically.

Students learn how to solve problems that are important to them, including real-world issues, while learning from failure and using feedback to focus on growth, improvement, and new learning.

Create the blueprint to implement Project-Based Learning.

We will show you exactly how to build the foundational practices so you can implement with ease while setting clear expectations and student accountability within their projects.

In this full-day virtual live workshop, you and your staff will learn:

Structured concepts for how to introduce Project-Based Learning to students
